This is the second album by the band, and I like it just as much as their first.
Some of the songs here have a bit of a harder edge with more guitar, but the lyrics are just as powerful as they were on their first disc. I believe that the disc only had one true hit single, the ballad A Long December and it is an excellent song. Miller's Angels and Goodnight Elisabeth are also beautiful ballads, each have their own distinctive sound.
The rest of my favorite songs here have a bit more of an edge to them, with plenty of loud guitars in play. Have You Seen Me Lately and Angels of the Silences being the standout tracks.
This was a fantastic follow-up to one of the best debut albums by any band. Unfortunetly, the disc was not as successful and the band seems to get a lower profile with each passing release. While their recent work does not interest me as much, their first two discs are excellent.
